Tips for Cheltenham Races

Situated in the picturesque county of Gloucestershire at Prestbury Park, Cheltenham hosts some of the best jump racing in the UK and is one of the most famous National Hunt venues in the world. We have tips for every meeting which always attracts an abundance of quality, from their opening Showcase Meeting in October, to the final race day in April. A plethora of graded contests throughout the season with 14 at the highest level at the famous festival in March, known as ‘The Greatest Show On Turf’.

Course: There are two tracks at Cheltenham, the Old Course and the New Course. They are both left-handed, testing circuits with the former a mile and a half and the latter half a furlong longer. The hurdles tracks are quite different as on the New Course, there are only two hurdles in the final seven furlongs which makes it more a test of stamina. At the Festival, the Old Course is used on the first two days with the New Course playing host the final couple of days.

Feature Meeting: The Cheltenham Festival is undoubtedly the highlight of the National Hunt season. With four days packed with championship race after championship race, it’s a racing lovers dream. We provide high-quality Cheltenham tips as well as detailed analysis for every race at the Festival.

2021 Cheltenham Festival Tips

Our Cheltenham Festival tips will start being posted in the weeks and months before Cheltenham, focusing initially on the biggest races with the strongest form lines. All our Cheltenham racing tips will be posted as early as possible, although the nature of horse racing declarations means that some (mainly the handicaps) can only be posted the afternoon or evening before.

We make our predictions as a team; each of our expert tipsters spends hours, if not days, researching every race and watching every race in the lead up to the big event. These tips are then discussed in a committee, with the strongest picks for each race being selected as our official Cheltenham tips.

The best four days in the U.K racing calendar, the Cheltenham Festival, begins on Tuesday 16th March until Friday 19th March 2021. We will have Cheltenham Betting Tips for every one of the twenty-eight races, with full runner by runner previews as well as the best Cheltenham Free Bets being offered by the bookmakers.

Day One Tips (Tuesday)

Tuesday is Champion Hurdle day and arguably the best day of the week. The 2020 edition does not have the look of a classic year but it does mean that it is a competitive looking contest. Nicky Henderson has won the race seven times, a record which he will look to add to with the likes of Epatante and Pentland Hills. An always strong Irish challenge comes from the likes of Honeysuckle, Sharjah and Saldier, all of whom have beaten the resurgent Petit Mouchoir.

The meeting opens with the Supreme Novices Hurdle, a contest that tends to be a strong guide to future stars. Abracadabras will look to produce a little magic for punters to open the week. The Arkle and the Ultima figure over the bigger fences before the Mares Hurdle, made famous by the incomparable Quevega.

Day Two Tips (Wednesday)

The second day features the Queen Mother Champion Chase, the race of the meeting. Altior, Defi Du Seuil and Chacun Pour Soir look set to produce a mouthwatering clash. The former bids to win at the Cheltenham Festival for the fifth year on the bounce and land a hat-trick in this race. Tiger Roll is another looking for a fifth Cheltenham Festival win in the Cross Country Chase. There will be few more popular or better-backed horses at the meeting.

Our Cheltenham tips begin with two novice events to kick the day off – The Ballymore Novices Hurdle and the RSA Chase. The former sees Envoi Allen head to post, a potential star, he will be one of the bankers of the meeting for many. Champ V Battleoverdoyen in the latter has lost a little of its lustre from earlier in the season but future Cheltenham Gold Cup runners will strut their stuff.

Races on Ladies Day

Day Three Tips (Thursday)

Two features on Thursday but only one horse will be on the lips of the Prestbury faithful, Paisley Park. Winner of the Stayers Hurdle last season, he is another who will form the basis of many Cheltenham Festival accas. The Ryanair Chase lacks a bit of the class of recent years but Min will look to avoid Altior here.

The Marsh Novices’ Chase opens the card where Faugheen could try to win at the Cheltenham Festival at the age of twelve. The Pertemps Final is one of the most anticipated handicaps of the year. Qualifiers through the season set up a number of fascinating plot lines to make it the best puzzle of the week for punters.

Day Four Tips (Friday)

Friday, Cheltenham Gold Cup day, the busiest day of the week. A wide-open content in the making this year with a case to be made for a half dozen. The 2019 Cheltenham Gold Cup winner, Al Boum Photo, heads the market with RSA second and third, Santini and Delta Work laying down strong challenges.

The Albert Bartlett and Triumph Hurdle are the two novice contests on the card. Both have a reputation as hard races to win and 2021 looks no exception with smart youngsters flooding the markets. Make sure to check out our Cheltenham tips for this one since it’s a fiendishly difficult race to predict. Three tough handicaps also feature with the County Hurdle heading to Dan Skelton three times in the last four years.
